KATHMANDU: The Supreme Court (SC) is hearing a writ petition filed by Senior advocate Dinesh Tripathi against Election Commission’s instruction to not advocate “No, Not Again” campaign.

Senior advocate Tripathi filed the write at the SC challenging the Election Commission’s notification against the “No, Not Again” Campaign.

Tripathi has filed a writ petition against the EC’s press release dated 7/8/079 in the Supreme Court on Monday.

The writ petition has stated that it is an evil intention to render the constitutional rights of citizens null or ineffective; term the exercise of fundamental rights criminal act and threaten the citizens with severe punishment.

“Such action is harmful to the health of democracy. Democracy is a marketplace of ideas, where different ideas compete freely with each other,” says the writ.

“This step of the Election Commission seems to be trying to push the country on the path of “guided democracy” or in Fareed Zakaria’s words “Illiberal democracy.”
